Death – Obituary

A man was shot to death Wednesday afternoon inside a rentable workspace several blocks north of the Indiana State Fairgrounds on the north side of Indianapolis, according to police.

Officers found the man shortly before 3:30 p.m. suffering from a gunshot wound on the floor inside Creators’ Club — a workspace in the 2000 block of East 46th Street used to host pop-up shops, photo shoots and business meetings, according to a sign on the door. He was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Yellow crime tape cordoned off the commercial strip home to a handful of businesses about an hour after the shooting was reported. People stood outside nearby shops and restaurants, watching officers walk in and out of the shop where the man lay dead. A woman in the adjacent salon continued to dress a customer’s hair.

A man was shot to death Wednesday afternoon inside a shop in the 2000 block of East 46th Street, police said.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Officer Genae Cook told reporters police had not yet identified any suspects in the shooting but noted the area was busy Wednesday afternoon, with a continuous line of cars moving along 46th Street.

“Here we are in the middle of a very populated area. So someone saw something, someone heard something, someone knows what’s going on,” Cook said. “There’s businesses right next door. This is where it’s time for the community to come forward and step up and say: ‘Hey, this is what I saw.'”

What Is An Obituary

In national newspapers an obituary (obit for short) is a news article that reports the recent death of a prominent person. Although it tends to focus on positive aspects of the subject’s life this is not always the case. According to Nigel Farndale, the Obituaries Editor of The Times: “Obits should be life affirming rather than gloomy, but they should also be opinionated, leaving the reader with a strong sense of whether the subject lived a good life or bad; whether they were right or wrong in the handling of their public affairs.”

In local newspapers, an obituary may be published for any local resident upon death. A necrology is a register or list of records of the deaths of people related to a particular organization, group or field, which may only contain the sparsest details, or small obituaries. Historical necrologies can be important sources of information.
